shopping ban.



This past Saturday evening, I came home from work and decided to do a closet review. It's been long over-due and it had been on my mind to take a mental inventory of every piece of clothing I own, what I wear, what just hangs there with no prospect of ever being worn, and what just needs to be donated. Interestingly enough, I am pleased to report that what I do have in my closet now is everything I would wear and re-wear over and over again (which really means that I truly don't need to be making purchases as frequently as I do). However, I came to the awful realization that I do, in fact, have a spending habit. A bad one. The accumulation of dresses, skirts, and tops over the past few months is a little out of hand. And I felt so embarrassed by it! This is where all of my money goes?! No wonder. Yikes.

So, I've decided (after the weekend of mulling this over), that I am implementing a very strict shopping ban for, at the very least, the next three months. This means that I will have no frivolous shopping sprees both at brick & mortar stores as well as online (the death of me). None. After the ninety days lets up, I will reassess my ban and decide on whether or not this has enabled me to save.

Wish me luck! The ban starts now.

    I'm gonna hold you to this. Well, as much as I can through the interwebs!

    Good luck! I can't wait to hear how this goes ... I'm not brave enough to do it myself! :)

    Good luck!
  • Ohhhh, good luck! Weirdly enough, I've never had a problem with clothes or accessories - I just need to start a shopping ban on groceries and restaurants :)
